Iran- April 23, 2019 -Sunday, April 21, was the commemoration day for Saadi, a great Iranian poet who lived in the thirteenth century and has written one of the most iconic collections of poetry and literature the country of Iran has seen so far. On this day, people who honor and value his work and poems sought to hold a ceremony at his tomb in the city of Shiraz, south-central Iran.
However, fearing that this event would turn into an anti-regime protest rally, the regime’s repressive state security forces closed down the site and prevented visitors to the tomb.
April 21st is named the “Day of Saadi,” in honor of his rich Farsi language literature.
